I give up... Where can I find the "Unique ID" for an app

I'm working on home screen layout for our sales ipads.  [Devices > Configuration Profiles > Home Screen Layout]

I didn't have any issues adding the well known apps thanks to JAMF's search feature but I have a couple of lesser known ones, for example, Service Finance Dealer App.  https://apps.apple.com/us/app/service-finance-dealer-app/id962933342

 

Can anyone help me by telling me how to find this information?

TIA,

Brandon

I think @ljcacioppo has provided the most elegant solution, but you can also find the identifier (aka "Bundle Identifier) in the app record itself in Jamf Pro.

I've typically been able to just start typing the app name into the display name field to find the identifier. For this one, l looks like it might be com.msi.servicefinance

@sudoBrandon  For that Application it is: com.msi.servicefinance

 

I found this by using this url: https://itunes.apple.com/lookup?id= as the prefix & by adding the id from your link as the suffix - after id= enter the numbers at the end of the url from apps.apple.com (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/service-finance-dealer-app/id962933342)- for example

https://itunes.apple.com/lookup?id=962933342

 

This downloads a .txt file. Do a find for "bundleId": & it will provide you with the Unique ID you need for the Configuration Profile.

Thanks, everyone for your help, and all were great solutions!  I learned something new for sure.  @talkingmoose this was a great tip.  If anyone reads this in the future, hit the edit button to show this info on an app that is already listed.
